Musonius Rufus: 2nd Lecture

Virtue is the art of living well, which is bound tightly to the stoic pillars of wisdom, courage, justice, and self-discipline. One would be hard pressed to argue that these qualities are not desirable when one wishes to live well: wisdom allows us experience and reasoned insight into situations that may cause difficulty in our lives; courage allows one the strength to do what is best for oneself and others, even in the most challenging of moments; the principles of justice guide our actions in the social and political aspects of daily interaction; and self-discipline helps us focus on what is truly important and of value, rather than those things that are external to our selves and of lesser importance than our quality of mind. 467 more words
